  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  Combining melatonin and omega-3 fatty acids to manage chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and spinal injury-induced neuropathic pain.
  Prof H Galley, Dr W Huang
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common and debilitating complication during cancer treatment, which can lead to chemotherapy drug dose reduction or treatment cessation.
  Using optogenetics to understand memory retrieval in models relevant to Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr S Wang, Dr K Horsburgh
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Memory dysfunction is a hallmark in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) that significantly affects the daily life in people living with AD. It remains debated whether memory deficits reflect an inability to store the information or an inability to retrieve information that is previously stored.
  Investigation of the anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin in a mouse model of chronic neuroinflammation – a route for a cure for Alzheimer’s disease?
  Dr E Gyengesi, Prof GM Muench
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the effect of chronic glial activation on brain structure and function, and test the efficacy of two cytokine-suppressive anti-inflammatory drugs (CSAIDs) against chronic glial activation and the resulting neuronal damage.
  Investigation of novel therapeutic strategies for Alzheimer’s disease-related inflammation
  Dr D Costello
Application Deadline: 16 June 2019

Funding Type

A 4-year PhD position is available in the lab of Dr Derek Costello at the UCD School of Biomolecular & Biomedical Science, University College Dublin.
  Identifying glucose-dependent mechanisms underlying risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr S McLean
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Several risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease including diabetes and midlife obesity are age-dependent and have an obvious metabolic component resulting in impaired glucose metabolism.
  Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
